Drake General Store

General store • Beaconsfield

"The Drake General Store, Queen West by Kindred Studio. As they are constantly asserting, The Drake Hotel has nothing to do with a certain local hip hop celebrity. In fact, they were here first and are arguably more prolific, having recently branched out with a hotel & restaurant in Prince Edward County and General Store locations in Ottawa and Vancouver, on top of their 5 Toronto locations + a partnership with Good Neighbour in Leslieville. The original Drake General Store on Queen West at Beaconsfield is fashioned after a traditional hotel gift store and finds itself somewhere between flea market and cottage country rest stop. Always smart, funny and eye catching, it's worth stopping in just for the nostalgia."
